DESIGN OF REST AREA COMFORT FACILITIES BY SYSTEMS ANALYSIS

THIS REPORT DESCRIBES A COMPUTER SIMULATION MODEL USED TO DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF COMFORT STATION FACILITIES NEEDED WITHIN REST AREAS. SYSTEMS ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES ARE USED TO SIMULATE THE OPERATION OF A COMFORT STATION. THE MODEL DETERMINES THE NUMBER OF FACILITIES-INCLUDING TOILETS, URINALS, WASH BASINS, AND DRYERS-NECESSARY TO SATISFY CERTAIN LEVELS OF SERVICE FOR SPECIFIED VOLUMES. THE MODEL IS BASED ON A LIMITED SAMPLE OF DATA AND ASSUMED DESIGN CRITERIA, AND THEREFORE IS PRESENTED PRIMARILY AS A DEMONSTRATION OF TECHNIQUE. IT IS HOPED THAT THIS REPORT WILL STIMULATE FURTHER RESEARCH IN THIS AREA. /AUTHOR/
